This year John Piper is sharing 25, 3-5 minute long meditations for the month of December. You can podcast them, listen to them from Desiring God web site and you can even sign up to have them emailed to you each day. They are short. They are meaty. They will not just educate your mind but they will stir your affections.

Even if you are not a reader, make this month one where you do a little. It isn’t too late to order Paul David Tripp’s new book: “Come Let Us Adore Him.”. You will also find some great Advent reading plans here.
